Newport - College of Art

In 1899 Lord Tredegar sold the land of Clarence Place, Newport, Gwent, to enable construction of the Newport Technical Institute. The foundation stone was not though laid until September 1910. From 1958 the building, which boasts a fine copper-covered dome, was the home of Newport College of Art. The site was abandoned in 1996, but has now been converted into apartments.
